On a chilly day, the Progressive Christian Community’s seed starting event, held in front of the Center for Campus Ministry on March 9, was a bright spot of sun. Helmed by PCC President Sarah Rackley, with the assistance of PCC Community Life Coordinator Mia Shelton, the event invited students to bring recycled materials to turn into planters for seed starters.
Some of the creative planting techniques included sage planted in plastic water bottles and cat grass planted in plastic cake containers from Metz.
September Wilson, an attendee of the event, said, “I loved it! Although it was cold, [Sarah Rackley and Mia Shelton] kept a great attitude and talked to everyone who passed by.”
PCC President Rackley added, “I loved getting to plant with people even though it was cold! Hopefully we can have many more events like this in the future.”
There are many opportunities to get involved with PCC. They host discussion groups every Monday, from 7-8 p.m., at the Center for Campus Ministry.
The organization also has a spring retreat planned, called “When Faith Fails.” It will be held at the House in the Woods, from April 1 to 2. It’s free to attend, and food will be provided. To register, or to learn more information, email Sarah Rackley ([email protected]).
